pp.  Wiley, doi:10. japp. According to this article, the author tries to defend the claim that subsidies for university education should be reduced. The author first goes ahead to accept that the university fees are costly and this results in there being the need for the prices being subsidised. In this article, the author admits that the tuition fees for universities in Australia are quite high. It is due to the high cost that the government finds the need to use subsidies to help reduce the cost of university fees. The article argues further that without this reduction, some students might not be able to raise their tuition fees but on the other hand, some of it goes ahead and becomes wasted. The reason why this article is very important for this research is that it proves that the education cost in Australian higher education is quite high. It is for this reason that the government feels the need to subsidise it so that it is lower and affordable to most students despite their backgrounds.
